A 26-year-old Israeli woman has been stabbed to death in the occupied West Bank, hours after another knife attack wounded a soldier in Tel Aviv.
The latest incident occurred near the Alon Shvut Jewish settlement. The assailant was shot by a security guard.
A Palestinian from the West Bank city of Nablus has been arrested in connection with the attack in Tel Aviv.
The stabbings come at a time of heightened tension between Israel and the Palestinians.
At the weekend, Israeli Arabs threw stones at police in mainly Arab towns in Israel after police shot dead a young Arab man, who had attacked them with a knife.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to crack down on the violence.
